Alternate Title BAMdialogue: A Conversation with Merce Cunningham, with Laura Kuhn
Production Language English
Country of Origin United States
Description Merce Cunningham and Laura Kuhn, Executive Director of the John Cage Trust.
Part of the Merce Cunningham Series: To honor Merce Cunningham as a pivotal figure in twentieth century modern dance and visual arts, as well as educate new audiences about his work and the choreographers he has influenced, BAM will stage a weekend celebration of Merce Cunningham's life and art. The almost simultaneous release of the new biography by David Vaughan will be the foundation for the weekend's structure and programs. We hope to host presentations in LifeForm Choreography, as well as screen films by Charles Atlas and present a video installation by Elliot Caplan. Other panels will focus on Merce's collaborations with visual artists and composers, and the company's long-standing history at BAM.
